The LA Times is trying to shame Governor Brown for vetoing a bill that would have banned all semi-automatic rifles with a detachable magazine. Let that sink in real good. The anti-gun media and activists (which is to repeat myself) believe it’s just fine to ban just about all semi-automatic rifles. And are willing to shame politicians who don’t agree. But remember, they are just after common-sense gun laws.
Because of Brown’s veto, these especially lethal firearms are still available for purchase in California. And they’ll continue to be used by wackos in horrific shootings.
Because surely, there has never been a deadly shooting that didn’t involve semi-automatic firearms. And the media will still refuse to accept their role in making these weapons “the weapons of choice for mass killers.” The fact is that the media constantly parroting this nonsense makes it a self-fulfilling prophecy. But perhaps that helps, rather than hinders, the cause for which they agitate for.
